One of two bikers who died in near-simultaneous but separate motorcycle crashes on a Tustin roadway Sunday was identified by the Orange County coroner’s office.

The two men were northward on Jamboree Road, just north of Barranca Parkway near Irvine when they lost control, Tustin Police Lt. Stephanie Nichols said.

Police were dispatched to the location around 3:13 a.m., Nichols said.

The first motorcyclist, who was pronounced dead at the scene, was identified as 33-year-old Quintin Lilienthal of Hemet, the coroner’s office reported.

The second man was rushed to an area hospital, where he later died from his injuries. His name was withheld pending notification of next of kin.

It was not immediately known if alcohol or drugs were involved in the accident. No other vehicles were involved. The causes of the crashes were still under investigation.

Tustin police urged anyone with information regarding the accident to call them at 714-573-3218.
